    (Providence, RI) -- A man stole a car in Providence last night with a passenger still inside. The "Providence Journal" reports that a man stopped at a Shell gas station on Valley Street to buy cigarettes in the station's convenience store, while his female passenger waited in the Audi. Police say a strange man then jumped into the driver's seat and drove off towards Federal Hill. The female passenger was ordered out of the car a short time later.

    Evil is a universal commidoty that is with us always. Those that would force their twisted will upon us need to be severly delt with in justice. It is a shame that our criminal court system does nor recognize this as a necessity for cival harmony and tranquality.
